NEFAs Billy Dunne ranked #1 AM on the planet! 

Wednesday, December 22, 2010  by John Borelli

Congratulations to NEFA member Billy Dunne of Trumbull, CT on being the #1 rated amateur disc golfer on the planet. The 18 year old college freshman has a 1009 PDGA rating!

> See for yourself

After tearing through the AM2 and AM1 divisions over the past few years, Billy now plays Open and declines cash payouts to maintain his amateur status and avoid any college eligibility issues.

Besides being a great disc golfer, Billy is also a darn nice kid and it's been fun watching him grow up. Way to go, Billy! You've made NEFA proud! top Top > Comments   (7 comments)

Disc golf with Santa 

Wednesday, December 15, 2010  by John Borelli

If you're done with your Christmas shopping by Christmas Eve day, why not reward yourself with playing in a doubles tournament? I just received this note from NEFA Dubs Series organizer, Titan Bariloni:

Come have some fun at a NEFA Dubz Event on Christmas Eve on a ball golf course that is set up as a disc golf course over the winter months. The course may not be setup this year and this may be your only chance to play this interesting layout. 

This could also be a "make or break" on if the course will open for the year. So let's do what we do best in NEFA and go support some disc golf!

The more the merrier! Tis the season for disc golf fun! No matter the turnout, it will be a fun way to spend the day and you'll have plenty of time to get home to the family, or it'll be a good way to be a part of the family we all call NEFA.

Thanks for the info, Titan. top Top > Comments   (1 comments)

Send in your tournament dates now 

Thursday, December 9, 2010  by John Borelli

Scheduling for 2011 events in New England is now open. If you plan on running an event, email event scheduler Blaze Konefal with your date and event details. 

NEFA Points Events

If you are running a NEFA Points event, you must submit a sanctioning application which will be available next week when the Points Charter is finalized. You can, however, send in your date request now and your event will be listed as pending.

PDGA Events

If you are running a PDGA-sanctioned event, remember to consult your PDGA state coordinator first.

Non-sanctioned events

If you are running an event without NEFA or PDGA sanctioning, just email Blaze your date and event info and we'll add it to the schedule! top Top
